Spring Growing Season

corn sprouting This month is a growing season! It is a time for growing deep roots of faith and experience the life-giving power of the Holy Spirit. It is time to grow more worshipful even in our times of grief and loss and see how the Lord is present with us in all of our trials. Every Sunday in May we have a special opportunity for growing in grace. First Sunday, we begin our Community Revival. Mothers’ Day, we celebrate and appreciate those who helped us grow up. May 18th we learn from the experience of Cathy Hendrick Weeks as she shares how God’s word was a strong tower that drew her out of grief and pain. The last Sunday, we remember those who have given their lives in service to our country and we come before the Lord with prayers and longing for the revival and growth in holiness of our nation.

Plan ahead and start your growing season in the Lord. Read the Newsletter and follow this month’s Calendar.

About laurelhillumc

Laurel Hill United Methodist Church is rich in history as a church family committed to a life in Christ. We began in the heart of Varina almost 150 years ago; the church has grown through its existence as a church-hospital in the Civil War, as a circuit church, and survived a disastrous fire which destroyed the sanctuary about 50 years ago. Then, dedicated, Spirit-filled Christians worked hard together to build a new sanctuary. That hard work has continued with many new improvements including a new addition connecting the sanctuary and educational building, the installation of an elevator providing total accessibility throughout both buildings, remodeling the education building and the installation of 18 stained glass windows. Faithful clergy and laity ministering together have established a legacy of dedication and service which enables Laurel Hill to be a beacon of light in our community, in our world and to all who follow for generations to come. In response to the needs of the Varina community, Laurel Hill United Methodist Church also operates the Laurel Hill Weekday School. These programs are an active part of the life and ministry of Laurel Hill UMC. We accept the opportunity through our morning Preschool and After School child care to share our values of love, caring, cooperation and forgiveness. The Church and child care programs work together to enhance the spiritual, mental and physical growth of children in our community. Our worship services are held each Sunday with a contemporary service at 8:45am and a traditional service at 11:00am. Sunday School begins at 9:45am. Call our office (804) 795-2772 for Bible Study times and other ministry opportunities.
